Statement from Colonel Kedrick Wills, ISP Director, regarding the outcome of the Eller vs. Idaho State Police trial - Aug 30, 2017:
"Obviously, we are disappointed in the outcome of this trial, but we respect the legal process and the rights of our employees to pursue their legal rights.
"When I took over the watch here at ISP, one of the first things we did was to initiate a climate survey seeking ideas for improvement from all ISP personnel. We are now several weeks into that process, which utilizes an outsider - a retired ISP employee - to conduct each face-to-face interview. In addition, ISP headquarters staff continues to look for other opportunities to improve processes across our statewide organization.
"Moving forward, we will continue in our mission of providing public safety across the State of Idaho through law enforcement excellence while taking care of our nearly 600 outstanding and dedicated personnel."
